D-Foamer

Antifoaming agent designed to breakdown unwanted or excess produced foam

An antifoam concentrate designed primarily to defoam unwanted or excess produced AFFF fire fighting foam.

Quickly eliminates foam so reducing the risk of foam / hydrocarbon carry over to industrial separators.

 

 

Environmental Impact

  • Very low order of toxicity
  • Not classified as hazardous to the environment

Applications

D-Foamer is an effective, stable antifoam in all types of applications including

  • Fire fighting foams
  • Training foams
  • Adhesives
  • Amine scrubbing
  • Cutting oils
  • Traffic Film Removers
  • Rigwash and Degreasers
  • Sewage and Effluent processes

Proportioning Information

D-Foamer disperses easily in both hot and cold aqueous systems, requiring only mild agitation to disperse it completely in the foaming system.

The quantity of antifoam required can only be found by experiment as it will vary depending on the drainage time of the foam.

In general between 0.6% and 3% of the product is all that is required, ie 0.6 - 3 litres of product per 1000 litres of foaming media.
